Those Elastic Fiction bods are busy aren't they? The Myth are a supergroup featuring members of Bonemachine, Transmission, Option 23, the Busted Fender Blues Band and my fave act from the roster, The Lizard Lie. Sylvia puts in yearning vocals on the hypnotic "Time To Sleep", as guitars pine away into an atmospheric expanse - a similar effect is had with the Massive Attack-like 'Coming Down', while 'Sky Monkies' simply rocks out soaringly. Lastly the beginning riff is repeated via haunting piano and an enchanting snap-shot of life is recanted. It sounds good as well as diverse - the most obvious comparison being 4AD collective This Mortal Coil, which is high praise indeed. A Cheery Wave From Stranded Youngsters (Al), July 2000
'Naked for the Camera' CD id available from Elastic Fiction Records www.elasticfiction.co.uk.
